Has anyone experienced ridiculously long search times if you try to make a search set for linked database parameters? I've linked an excel list we'll be using at commissioning stage of the project to my file. the linked table is roughly 1200x35 cells and i have about 6000 objects in my simplified model. when i make a search set for the linked parameters it takes about 1-1.5 hours to process. However, if i don't add any search sets - everything seems to work fine and linked properties come in rather fast.
Anyone has any ideas on reducing the search time? Could it be ****** 64-bit odbc drivers in ms2010 beta causing this?
At this time i'm thinking about using revit DB link and just adding parameters i need into revit model and constantly updating it. However this trick will not work with part of my model that was done by our consultants in microstation/solidworks - not sure what workarounds can be done for that case.
